MOST COMMENTED

Bob DiGrazia, who coached the University of California's men's team for 28 years (1953-80) and remains the Bears' all-time winningest coach with a 202-133-39 record, died Dec. 11.

A San Francisco native, DiGrazia played for Cal in 1948-50 and became the Bears' first All-American in 1950. As coach, he guided the Bears to their first two NCAA playoff appearances, in 1960 and 1977. Fifteen of his players collected a total of 19 All-American honors.

In 1983, DiGrazia earned the 43rd annual Honor Award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

He served as a Cal assistant athletic director for six years after his coaching career ended.

DiGrazia, who had suffered from Parkinson's disease, was 79.
